Liebster Award

I've been a bit under the weather for the last few days; there are always some nasty bugs going around at this time of year but this one left me feeling like my throat had been cut - from the inside!! So I have not touched my laptop for at least three days. Woke up bright and early this morning and for the first time in days could actually swallow without having to contort my face so I ended up looking like a tickle me elmo!, went to my blog and Ta Dah! there was this lovely award from Melanie. If you haven't come across her blog, check it out here.
If you have never heard of the Liebster Award (and I will be totally honest here, I hadn't), here is how it works:
The "Liebster Award" is given to bloggers who have 200 or less followers, in the hope that it will bring them new followers and friends. The tradition is that it is then passed on to five other blogs to help them too. If you want to accept the award the steps are:
1. Link back to the person who gave you the award and in a new post, thank them.
2. Post the award on your blog.
3. In your 'Thank You' post (No. 1, above), nominate five fellow bloggers who inspire you.
4. Leave a comment on their blogs.
The five fellow Bloggers I would like to award are:
Crafting Christine
Lorraine's Place
Mrs B's Blog
Berit's Hobbyblog
Kate's A Crafty Bugger
Not an easy decision to make but I would like to thank ALL my followers - you all inspire me and Thank You to all the people who take the time to read my blog, I really appreciate it.
